I first contacted Tracie by email with questions about the possibility of Fresh Plate catering a relatively small (15 individuals) party at my home. I had seen her website and found many of the hot and cold starters appealing. I asked if we could have a selection of starters that would satisfy as dinner. She immediately replied with two sample menus and a range of costs. We were able to complete the planning for the evening with subsequent emails. She made the planning process extremely easy with timely responses, complete and clear answers to my questions, and excellent suggestions. Fresh Plate's contributions help make the evening a complete success. The quality and quantity of the food was suburb with some unique starters that elicited comments and compliments from my guests. Her catering manager stayed for part of the evening, and her attention to the food, presentation, and guests put me at ease, so that I could enjoy the evening also! Thank you Tracie and Lori!

The City of Loveland Water and Power Department does business with Fresh Plate Catering on a regular basis, for both big and small occasions. We enjoy their trendy menu selections, appreciate the lovely setup of food, and are pleased with their reasonable prices. Tracie and her staff have earned our confidence and loyalty!

Nancy Erickson - Wedding Reception

Tracie - Thank you for doing such a wonderful job catering Erica and Matt's wedding reception. The server Val was a tremendous help. Now, I could not tell you exactly what she did...I only know I did not enter the kitchen after the set-up staff left, and all catering needs were taken care of by the time she left! I could not even tell we had a party in our home except all our friends and family raved about the food and validated we chose the perfect caterer. I consider that a huge success. I also appreciate your menu selection and your flexibility with everything.  The Bloody Mary Shooters were a big hit and the leftovers were enjoyed at breakfast for Eric, Matt and their ten friends who spent the night. Everything was simply perfect!

The food and presentation has been phenomenal! It is always fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. It was easy to coordinate and plan with Tracie. I especially appreciate her creativity with food, which helps make our events unique.

Working with Fresh Plate has simplified our class logistics greatly and has impressed our attendees with great food. I make a one minute call to Tracie, with times and details, and then know all will be handled exceptionally.

Angi Lund - Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness Owner

These guys are amazing! From the planning of my event they were thorough with of their communication and we were extremely pleased with the menu selections. Our guests loved the food. Everything was fresh and served in a beautiful way as well. We did hire one of Fresh Plate's staff to serve our guests as well and it made the event so much more enjoyable as the host. We will definitely work with Fresh Plate again.

Wedding Reception

Tracie was our caterer for our wedding reception and we absolutely loved all of the food she and her team at Fresh Plate prepared for us and our guests. Everything was healthy, delicious, affordable, and we had tons of options. Tracie worked so well with our wedding coordinator, our cake bakers, and she helped us put out family prepared hors d'oeuvres during our cocktail hour. Tracie labeled all of our dishes- which was much appreciated by our guests with eating restrictions. To top it all off, Tracie’s face lit up when we asked her if she could make a Bolivian salsa that she had never heard of as one of our main condiments. She happily took my husband's family recipe and made it from scratch- such a huge hit with my in-laws! Tracie is easy to work with, she’s friendly, fun, and she makes such amazing food. We highly recommend Tracie at Fresh Plate!

Mrs. Claire Coppola

Fort Collins, CO

Tracie and her staff were absolutely wonderful to work with.  She made our menu selection so easy and nailing down the details was a BREEZE.  The food was delicious (even though as the bride and groom we only had a few bites!). She and her staff were so helpful, they made plates for us and for our grandparents so we could have a moment to eat something and so our grandparents wouldn’t have to get up and stand in line at the buffet.  I would absolutely recommend Fresh Plate for any event you may have and I will definitely consider hiring them for any future events I will need catered!

Fresh Plate Catering provided all of the food (sans dessert) for a party I was hosting at our home for my husband’s 60th birthday. Tracie met with my husband and me prior to the event to discuss our preferences and then created a menu that incorporated our ideas along with her wonderful recommendations. We went with a ‘heavy hor d’oeuvres’ menu and the food was awesome!

There were about 45 people in attendance and everyone absolutely raved about the food. It was so delicious and atypical of the type of appetizers you would usually find at a ‘house party.’ In addition, the presentation was done very well; she made up a charcuterie tray that was really over the top. I would use Fresh Plate Catering again in a minute and would highly recommend Tracie to anyone.
